Wedding gift ideas from Present Aid

July 23, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Present Aid, the charity gift shop of Christian Aid, brings you a selection of wedding gift ideas to celebrate the love and union of the special couple, while helping to make a lasting difference to poor communities.

The bride and groom, or friends and family, can create wedding gift lists by using the give as a group page. This allows loved ones to come together and either give a selection of items or choose some of the more expensive Present Aid gifts for instance, the village well (£327) that could transform the lives of a community in Kenya.

All of the wedding gift items have been specially chosen to delight the happy couple, such as a floating garden (£18).

For a couple keen on cooking, a kitchen set (£19) could help a family displaced by disaster to prepare food for themselves.

If the special couple are passionate about the power of education to change lives, the gift of a school desk for two children (£60) in South Sudan could enable children to get the most out of the education they deserve.

The bride and groom can plant 20 fruit trees (£16) to celebrate their love and help lift poor communities in Nicaragua out of poverty.

If you plan on giving a gift and still can't decide what to get the happy couple, try a gift bundle. The gift bundles are comprised of several Present Aids favourites, taking away the need to choose individual gifts while still helping to transform lives around the world.

Mixed gift bundle (£150) This gift set contributes towards school and healthcare resources for children, jerry cans to store safe water, crops for farmers and emergency first aid kits.

Water and environment bundle (£345) Provides a well that could give an entire village access to clean water, plus jerry cans to allow families to store the water safely.

Healthcare bundle (£95) Mosquito nets and a pair of crutches could both make a huge difference to the lives of others.

Emergency and disaster bundles (£40) Providing people with a month's supply of food, as well as a first aid kit, could help save lives during an emergency.

In addition to the wedding gift list suggestions and gift bundles, Present Aid gifts are categorised by theme, allowing shoppers to find fitting gifts for all kinds of interests.

Each Present Aid gift goes towards a specific fund that supports Christian Aid's work. You can find out more about the difference that agriculture and livestock gifts, or water and environment gifts, are making to poor communities worldwide.
